Hint

Intro

The Pays de Fribourg is somewhat a world turned upside down: cold, limestone summits are found in the south and mild, even Mediterranean-like lakesides in the north. On its small territory, two languages coexist and three very distinct holiday regions overlap: the Pre-Alps, the city of Fribourg and the Three-Lakes Region.

Winter

The Pre-Alps region offers a superb infrastructure for winter-sport activities, especially for snowshoeing on a low price level! This close-to-nature leisure pursuit has been booming for some years here. And no wonder, as way over 100 km of marked and easily accessible routes attract all age groups, novices and experts alike, to the enchanted snow-covered countryside.

Doing winter sports from Les Paccots to Gruyeres, in Charmey, Jaun, Schwarzsee, La Berra, Moléson-sur-Gruyères... It isn't far to drive, while prices are lower than at the more sophisticated winter-sport resorts, much to the pleasure of families, in particular. You can savour the culinary delights of the Pays de Fribourg at a host of Alpine huts. Refuel with a fondue, a soupe du chalet, a potato rösti or a fine dessert, and enjoy the cordiality and romance of dining at a hut.

Even during the cold seasons, our medieval cities will charm and enchant you with their rich cultural heritage. For example the unique St. Nicholas celebrations with their traditional parade in Fribourg, the path of nativity sets in Estavayer-le-Lac, the Christmas market in Morat.

Summer

In the Pre-Alps region, tradition and modernity rub shoulders every day. After feeling as if you were living in Heidi's time, you'll suddenly find yourself in Gruyères amid the works of H.R. Giger, the creator of Alien! If you like to hike or bike, the resorts of Schwarzsee, Charmey, Bulle, Moléson and Les Paccots will give you dream-come-true settings. Whatever you do or don't do, do not miss the Castle of Gruyères and the demonstration cheese dairy.

In Fribourg, the canton's capital and economic centre, you'll find a cultural treasure trove that goes back to the Middle Ages. Fribourg is known for its cultural plurality, university and gastronomy. Our heart's delights: the Espace Jean Tinguely - Niki de Saint Phalle in Fribourg and the Swiss Stained Glass Windows Museum in Romont.

In less than an hour's drive from the Pre-Alps you'll come across the Mediterranean mildness of the medieval cities of Murten and Estavayer-le-Lac. Even at the time of the Celts and Romans, the Three-Lakes Region was a favourite place to holiday. The Papiliorama in Kerzers and the wildlife sanctuary "Grande Cariçaie" are truly worth your while.
